Analysis: Mariah Carey proves she’s the undisputed queen of Christmas

Now, while many of you probably waited until Thanksgiving to bring out the decorations (we don’t mean you were the first people to eat turkey next to your Christmas tree), we have to roll with Curry.

After all, the “All I Want for Christmas” singer is a big time in the holiday season.

So, how can I not start this week on Pop Life Chronicles with the singer, now that we’re so firmly into the season?

Three things to watch

“Maria’s Birthday: The Magic Continues”

Who’s Christmas Special Better Than Mariah Carey?

Guests include Khalid and Grammy Award-winning gospel star Kirk Franklin. A special feature is an exclusive interview with Carrie, her 10-year-old twins, her Moroccan son, and her daughter, Monroe.

We also promised to “deliver a new, dazzling performance of fan favorite, ‘Christmas (Baby Come Home)'”.

You’ll have to wait for it to go live on December 3 on Apple TV+, but it looks like it’s worth the wait.

Marvel keeps on giving.

Another one from The Avengers got a series, this time Clint Barton, played by Jeremy Renner, who joined Hailee Steinfeld as another Marvel character, Kate Bishop.

The shooters take aim at some enemies, and you don’t have to be a Marvel fan to get into the action.

It’s streaming on Disney+.

‘Destined to perish’

I change gears quite a bit here…but part of my job is to keep you informed, so I have to include this.

“Hellbound” is the latest South Korean drama to be shown on Netflix.

There are no spoilers, but it’s about how “supernatural events wreak great havoc and enable the new truth religious group to increase its influence”.

Like another Korean song on Netflix, “Squid Game,” it’s definitely not for those who are easily allergic or frightened.

“Hellbound” is now broadcasting.

Bonus: Let’s take it back to 2006, when the paparazzi snapped a now famous photo of Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Lindsay Lohan in Beverly Hills. Fast forward to today, and see how the stars line up with these Hollywood celebs in the latest episode of my weekly show, Pop Live Pop Off! Check it out here:

Two things to listen to

Bryson Tiller performs during the 2017 BET Trial at LA Live in Los Angeles, June 23, 2017.

Bryson Teller has made a holiday album for the brokenhearted.

The R&B singer called it “A Different Christmas,” and he told Billboard that the pandemic, along with a bad breakup, inspired him, even though he’d always wanted to make a Christmas album.

“Experiencing that loneliness and the idea of ​​spending Christmas alone made me (say), OK, I think I could make a Christmas album — but I’m going to do it my way,” he told the newspaper.

The album is currently streaming.

Melissa Gorga attends OK!  New York Fashion Week 12th Annual Celebration Magazine Up &  In New York City, September 6, 2018.

If you’re a fan of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” I have just the podcast for you.

Cast member Melissa Gorga releases “Melissa Gorga on Screen” on PodcastOne on December 2.
“Every week, my celebrity guests and I will share stories and talk about all kinds of things like fashion, family, show business, entrepreneurship, and of course treating yourself,” Gorga told People magazine. “Believe it or not, there are stories that cameras don’t tell. And that’s what you’ll get with this podcast. It’s an unfiltered life.”

Fingers crossed that Andy Cohen is one of her first guests.

one thing to talk about

Chrissy Teigen attends the Vanity Fair Awards after party at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, California, February 9, 2020.

Chrissy Teigen has introduced me to something new: eyebrow transplantation.

Maybe I’m late to the party (or maybe it’s because I have so plump eyebrows that I live in strands), but I had no idea that was a thing.

Dr. Jason Diamond, who performed the procedure for Teigen, shared the photo on his Instagram account.

“Eyebrows play a huge role in facial aesthetics,” he wrote in the caption. “They frame the eyes and can either be a source of strength for the eyes, or they can be the annoying part of your morning that you have to spend ten minutes filling in.”

The transplanted hair came from the back of her head, according to Teigen. There is no judgment here. Whatever makes you feel your best.

something to sip on

Selena Gomez has announced the launch of a new media platform focused on mental health.

Lots of celebrities talk about mental health, but Selena Gomez is getting in the way.

The singer/actor/producer/host of the cooking show Wondermind, a mental health platform that aims to help end the stigma surrounding mental illness and connect people to the educational resources they need most.
Gomez, who reported in April that she has bipolar disorder, is a staunch advocate of addressing mental health concerns, and her public stance can go a long way toward helping others.

Let’s be honest: We’re a society that looks out for the rich and famous. The more open they are about their struggles, the more that encourages others to be honest and ask for support.

So, thank you, Selena Gomez, for telling us all that it’s OK to not be okay and that help is out there.
